Harley-Davidson Joins Buell as Femmoto 2007 Sponsor

Street Demo Rides New at Female-Focused Motorcycle Event

Press release

MILWAUKEE (April 4, 2007) - For the first time at Femmoto, female riders
will have the opportunity to demo ride motorcycles on the street as well
as the track, and Harley-Davidson is excited to be one of the event
sponsors. Buell Motorcycle Company has offered on-track demo rides at
Femmoto for the last two years, but this is the first time
Harley-Davidson will be involved with the event, held at the Las Vegas
Motor Speedway from October 5-7.



For the past five years, manufacturer demo rides at Femmoto were limited
to on-track riding. The organizers, Sportbike TrackTime, decided to
broaden the scope in 2007 to include street rides. They also changed the
format to include a track day on Friday, October 5, for men and women
riding their own motorcycles. Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7, will be
women-only demo rides on the street and track.



In conjunction with the event, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson will host a
Garage Party the evening of Thursday, October 4, geared toward
non-riding women interested in getting into the sport of motorcycling.
In addition, the dealer's Rider's Edge New Rider Course that weekend,
October 5-7, will be exclusively for female students. Details on the
Garage Party are still being finalized, but interested women can sign up
now for the New Rider Course (which is limited to 12 participants) by
contacting the dealer directly at 1-888-218-0744.



More details on Femmoto activities will be announced in the coming
months. For more information and to register for the event, log onto
www.femmoto.com. For updates on additional Harley-Davidson and Buell
activities at Femmoto, keep an eye on the Women & Motorcycling section
of www.harley-davidson.com (under Rider section).



Femmoto began in 2001 as a women-only track day, but has quickly evolved
into much more. Today Femmoto is an organization that looks to fill the
void for women motorcycle riders who are looking not only to improve
their riding skills with on-track instruction, but who need information,
contacts, and specialty services/products. The event also raises money
for The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation "Race For The Cure". A
portion of Club Femmoto membership fees go towards this cause along with
a donation from the proceeds of the event.



Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the only major U.S.-based motorcycle
manufacturer, produces heavyweight motorcycles and a complete line of
motorcycle parts, accessories and general merchandise. For more
